Here we go. Same thing happening again instead of arresting him. By passing courts he had given a statement to CID. Sure he will be free under MY3 too. As an ordinary citizen actually we do not know what this government going to do with all corrupted individuals. The current president as stated in yesterdays rally he also wonder why the processing is so slow. We put our trust on you Sir, do not under estimate it

At last some progress in investigation of corruptioon. But only hope is that delay will not be for buckling and bugling the case so that these persons will get off.

This case should be relentlessly pursued and prosecuted to the end.Drug suppliers deserve capital punishment, for the vast numbers of lives they ruin.

If that is all the action the Police can take against people accused of involvement with drugs, why was that boy who signed a parcel consigned to an actress in Kollupitiya thrown in to jail for 2.5 years pending inquiry?

Politics is a dirty game. Once yo enter into it unless and untill the people reject you, no body will come out of it.

First arrest him and object for bail. When he is free he will find loop holes to get away. I think there is some issue in not arresting influential people in our country. MS

After questioning, once proven he is guilty he will be sent home for better negotiations. If the deal works he will be proven innocent just like the Murder case of minister Baratha lakshman.
